Only Built For Cuban Linx

 

Hat tip to Drew from Ghostrunner on First for giving me the idea for this post.  Glove smack to Chef Raekwon for putting out a pretty solid album.  You see, this past winter I ventured to Cuba to witness Cuban Baseball.  It had a profound effect on me to say the very least.  Much of the offseason I have spent posting Cuban related baseball articles and now that the 2010 season is here, I thought it might be prudent to do a roundup of what has transpired as well as share my favourite Cuban baseball resources.
